LUXURY ONLINE: Condé Nast Traveler has long been a bible for seekers of the good life on the road. Its revamped website now offers the same style of travel advice online. Digital globetrotters will find details on fine dining, hotels and destinations from Alaska to Zanzibar, with many stops in between. One of the best features is access to a group of online travel experts who will answer readers' questions via e-mail.

FLYING WITH FIDO: Trying to decide where to take a holiday with your animal companion? This site serves up information and links for pet-friendly destinations around the world. Hotels that leave catnip on the pillow, dog-positive beaches, ski hills that allow Bowser on the lift are all here. Petswelcome also includes details on emergency vets, kennels, advice on air travel and information on dealing with foreign fleas. It is, like much on the Web, America-centric, but still a useful stop for those traveling with furry friends.
